Love this casino, and actually most things about this hotel. The hotel is beautiful with lovely rooms. Two strange things that made me give it a 4 out of 5. First is the glass see through shower walls leading into the bedroom. So there is a curtain between but there really is no way to close it all the way... More

Located just minutes south of Iowa City, Riverside Casino and Golf resort is a great place to go to relax. The hotel is clean and fresh. They have an indoor outdoor pool for the kids. Great golf and a beautiful casino.

This is an excellent place to stay, very clean, and modern. Our girls loved the large glass shower and the curtains opened and shut with a touch of a button. They also loved the indoor/outdoor pool. The only thing that would have been nice to have wifi free for all paying guests. We had a coupon for our hotel room... More

The hotel rooms are very nice and CLEAN and the beds are very comfortable. The "glass" showers are huge and lots of hot water. The Casino is very nice and feels like "Vegas". Have stayed there four times and great service every time. Check-In is fast & courteous, as well as Check-Out. Have enjoyed the buffets too. We are not... More

An excellent place to stay that is just south of Iowa City. The rooms are wonderfully appointed, the casino is clean and entertaining, and the golf course is outstanding. The one negative is the lack of a coffee shop for a breakfast, forcing you to eat at the buffet.

We went to Riverside Casino with two other couples to gamble and play some golf. Check-in was a breeze, the hotel was spotless and the gambling area was less smoky than some of the other casinos in Iowa. We ate at the buffet and were somewhat disappointed. The roast pork was very dry and the ribs were room temperature. All... More

What a pleasant experience at Riverside Casino and Golf Resort. I was there with a motor coach load the first part of May and returned myself 2 weeks later. The rooms are very clean, comfortable, attractive, and complete with refrigerator, coffee maker, etc. The dining experiences are from a convenient small restaurant with menu, a deli, Ruthe's up-scale dining, and...

Stayed here for one night on business. Rooms were nice. Very modern. Kind of like a "W" feel to them. Casino was ok. Living in Vegas, maybe I'm jaded. Nothing bad. Tried the cafe downstairs. Food was good. Priced right. Was very clean and well kept. Would stay again.

We always like to hear from our guests from Las Vegas as they generally have lots of casino resort experience. While it is difficult to reproduce that Vegas-style place in the middle of Iowa, we do try each and every day to do just that. Thanks for your positive comments about our resort.

Our room was lovely. Food was good. Staff were friendly. Casino machines were out of the 90's. There was none of the new fun machines. This was really disappointing. I would go somewhere else if I were you.
